I'm getting a couple of user registrations on my personal website (presumably from bots or people trying to hack my site). How do I disable new user registration entirely?

Change the setting 'Who can register accounts?' to 'Administrators only' at http://yoursite.com/admin/config/people/accounts

Go to admin/config/people/accounts and check the box that says Administrators only under Who can register accounts?
